SWAPPING CARS FOR BIKES

Do we always have to go by car? Why not reach for the bike more often instead of cramming ourselves behind the wheel even just for short journeys? My husband and I thought the same thing and decided to make a change. With our new e-bikes, our plan was to make a conscious decision to choose cycling.

Siggi and Rieke never really realised before how many great attractions were close by or what beautiful nature was waiting to be discovered on their front doorstep – and the extra radius offered by the e-bike makes it so much easier. Today, the question is more: „Do we really have to take the car?“

Combined with our efficient Comfort Geometry and a frame structure that‘s stiff and light, this ensures sure-footed and responsive handling.
